The Anglican Peace and Justice Network (APJN) is a recognised network of the Anglican Communion and connects Anglicans around the world who share a passion for conflict transformation, peace-building, and seeking Christ-centred justice for all people. Through information sharing and bringing stories of hope from local contexts to the wider Communion, APJN supports Anglicans in responding to the Five Marks of Mission with a particular focus on the Fourth Mark: 'To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation'.
